Description

This listing is for ONE SET of 12 large calendar lithographs for the year 1955. There is one large calendar page for every month of the year. Each page shows one gorgeous woman wearing fabulous 1950s clothing. Three months of dates are shown on each calendar page. These are wonderful pieces and ready for framing.

Each month shows the New Moon, First Quarter, Full Moon and Last Quarter . LITHO IN U.S.A. is shown in small print as is Copyright 1954 by The Timken Roller Bearing Company. Either MILES OF SMILES ON TIIMKEN BEARINGS, TIMKEN FINE ALLOW STEELS, TIMKEN REMOVABLE ROCK BITS, TIMKEN GRAPHITIC TOOL STEELS, OR TIMKEN SEAMLESS STEEL TUBING appears in white letters on black background at the bottom of each of the poster pages. This calendar page measures 16" x 20".

Victor Keppler (1904-1987) was born in New York City on September 30th. He is best known for his commercial photography, which won him numerous awards throughout his career. He worked for several major advertisers, such as General Electric, Corning Glass, and DuPont. He also had photographs and cover art published in the Saturday Evening Post, Ladies' Home Journal, Better Homes and Gardens, and Cosmopolitan, among others.

CONDITION: This set of 12 large lithographs are in excellent vintage condition; these are without markings or creases having been well-preserved over their 50 years . Each print is signed by Victor Keppler on the bottom right side; colors remain vibrant and bright.

*********************************************************

HERE'S THE STORY ON THE PRINTS IN GENERAL:

I was thrilled when I came across a large bunch of replacement calendar poster pages from the 1950s and 1960s. I have about 88 heavy-duty photo calendar pages each of which is considered highly collectible frame able wall art. The man behind these lithographic prints is the infamous commercial photographer Victor Keppler and he was one accomplished fellow. (Google him and you'll see what I mean!)

I will be listing a large number of these over the next week both individually and by sets. I have been collecting for over 20 years and have never found anything similar; these are difinitely a rare find -- especially in such wonderful condition. The colors are all fabulous and the prints are very life-like Additionally, the lighting is so exceptional that each beautiful woman looks like she is popping out of the page. Each gal is dressed in a 1950s era outfit suited for the month she represents.

I have complete sets containing 12 gorgeous calendars for the following years:

1955 -- Complete with January through December 1955
1956 -- Complete with January through December 1956
1958 -- Complete with January through December 1958
1960 -- Complete with January through December 1960
1961 -- Complete with January through December 1961

At this point I am not going to break the 12-month sets since they are scarce finds.

Vintage calendar prints for the years 1954, 1957 and 1959 will be listed individually since those years are missing a few months.
